The Lenovo 100e features an 11.6-inch (1368 x 768) display, MediaTek CPU, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. These low-power components would normally give us pause, but as a Chromebook, the 100e runs Google's lightweight Chrome OS. ChomeOS gives you access to productivity apps like Google Docs and Google Sheets, so it's not meant to replace your desktop.
